“Komaneka Rasa Sayang”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

Absolutely beautiful. Location is very convenient in the middle of Monkey Forest Road with shops and restaurants on your doorstep. The hotel however, is a welcome respite from the chaos outside. We were made very welcome, attention to detail was perfect, pool beautiful, and rooms were amazing. The spa was fantastic and good value especially with its breathtaking views. The staff were very keen to do everything to please. We couldn't have hoped for more.

We stayed at the Komaneka Monkey Forest in early September in a pool villa. We thought it good value in $AUD terms. On arrival we were charged one nights tariff which was (I think) calculated from a $USD price converted to rupiah. We were concerned by this exchange dance but on the card statement at home everything was above board and as quoted. A word on exchange – for $100aud – at my bank 780,xxx rupiah and bank charges – airport 720,xxx – at the Ubud money changers (plentiful) 890,000 to 900,000 rupiah. Moral of the story; take some home currency with you. Our villa was, spacious, well air-conditioned, giant bed, mega bathroom, outdoor areas with sun-lounges and a shady patio with dining table and daybed, and the vista of the adjacent rice paddy across the pool was the icing on the cake. The staff were courteous, competent, and attentive. We very much enjoyed the variety available on the included breakfast. We only dined at the hotel one evening, and wine was in short supply and pretty bad (sorry to say). We stuck with beer after that; plentiful, good and inexpensive. An email sent the day before our arrival detailed a number of free inclusions one of which was a shuttle service to the centre of Ubud. We were travelling when this email arrived, and so weren’t aware of the shuttle which we would have used had we known.

Room Tip: The pool villas are adjacent to the rice paddy. Don't know what views the other rooms have.

Our booking was with Komaneka Monkey Forest, a hotel I had always wanted to stay at. On arrival we were offered the new Komaneka Rasa Sayan and ended up staying 1 night there. However we moved back to Komaneka Monkey Forest the next day as we preferred having the garden to walk through. Our room overlooked the pool, waterfall and rice fields. It was heaven. Moving from one htel to the other was no problem for all the wonderful staff. We even went over to Rasa Sayan for breakfast. It was all the little touches that made this hotel so special.- thank you Komaneka.

We booked in here for 4 nights after 2 and a half weeks on the fairly remote islands, hoping for some life but also some luxury.

We caught an early morning speedboat from Nusa Lembongan to Sanur. The boat pulled up onto the beach and in the scramble out I was tipped head first into the sea ! The driver we had booked was really sweet and brought us to a public convenience where I picked the seaweed out of my hair and emptied the sand out of my bikini.

Semi-tidied up we all set off for Ubud and arrived into this beautiful hotel at about 9.30. The extremely charming young man explained that "our room " would not be ready 'till 2p.m. , but that they would upgrade us to the honeymoon suite at another Komaneka property a fair bit outside Ubud free of charge and that this was available immediately

Now normally this would have been music to our ears , but we really did want to be in the centre of things. Ever the diplomat, my hubby asked to see one of the rooms at the hotel we were in. We were shown into a stunningly beautiful room, perfectly made up with rose petals on the bed etc. etc. So we said , thanks but no thanks , we would really like to stay here please. The receptionist explained that "the guests" were still in "our room " so sadly we would not be able to have it 'till 2p.m. We hung around for a while, then had something to eat in town and I took my extremely dishevilled self off for a massage, having even more seaweed and sand removed from my nooks and crannies, arriving back at 2 p.m.

Lo and behold my hubby had been checked into the very room we saw at 9.30 ! Now either the room had been occupied the night before by a couple of extremely tidy ghosts who didn't sleep in the bed or use the bathroom or have any luggage or we were told a teeny weeny little white lie by the extremely lovely and charming receptionist.

After that the rest of our stay was fantastic.The pool, the food and the wonderful spa was amazing. We loved being so close to everything and being able to walk everywhere was fantastic. I had been to Ubud in 1991 on my big backpacking trip around the world , when it was my favourite place. It was fantastic to come back with my lovely husband and share it all with him.Unbelievably we found the very bungalow I stayed in then, just around the corner and still owned by the same charming family.

Ubud has changed alot since 1991, but then so have we all. Overall I loved it this summer just as much as I did back then and the people are still just as lovely.

Would give it 4 and three quarter stars !

Booked into Monkey Forest and upgraded on arrival to Rasa Sayan just over the road in the middle of Ubud. As you would expect from a new hotel everything was pristine. Staff - all so young..were very friendly and helpful and welcomed us home every time we came back to the room. Room was spacious, with massive bath and rain shower, all mod cons. Balcony view not fantastic but in middle of Ubud would not expect great views from side of the hotel. Pool was beautiful. Breakfast was great. Would recommend this hotel.

We had reservations at Komaneka Monkey Forest but were given the option to stay at the brand-new Komaneka at Rasa Sayan, about 75 meters across the street from the Monkey Forest hotel. In our opinion, this facility was outstanding in every respect. We had a very spacious, modern and well-designed room with every conceivable ammenity. The staff and the restaurant were beyond phenomenal. They thrive on providing excellent service and ensuring your stay was a memorable one. We spent blissful days/4 nights and will stay there if I return to the Ubud area in the future. Komaneka provides the services and atmosphere of a much more expensive resort at an affordable price.

Room Tip: Our room was on the second floor, towards the back of the building and was very quiet.

What a nice surprise entering our room at the Komaneka Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa in Ubud! This new Komaneka owned hotel was opend only 1 month ago and we had the chance to get one of the rooms instead of the originally booked one.

Sparkling clean with a heart of flowers arranged on our bed, with an impressive bathroom containing a big bath tub and two sinks. A nice terrace with a lounge and many cushions.
Because we travelled with two toddlers (1 and 2 y) we also had a baby cot in our room (which are rarity to Bali) also covered with a mosquito net.

The restaurant had a nice Western and Indonesian Menu; a good choice of breakfast dishes and also a (Balinese ;-)) baby high chair. The staff was friendly and caring, everyone knew the names of our kids even we haven’t met them ourselves before. The restaurant service tended to be slow though, especially at dinner time. The food prices are fair for a 4* restaurant!

The Komaneka Spa was a nice experience, we were served a welcome and farewell drink and the service was great. The prices are ok for the type of service and resort, you will be thrown over with leaflets of other spas wandering the Monkey Forest Rd in Ubud, which are all much cheaper.

We haven’t used the pool, which looked nice within all the green bush around. Worth to go up to level 4 and see the roofs of Ubud.
